    firmware? its basically a portable windows 10 gaming device, at least read its website.

    its said to run games like red dead and cyberpunk at a good rate and settings, emulators are what they are, it should run pretty much any emulator that has good compatibility.

    Maybe I'm getting confused with those dedicated Chinese handhelds, those typically use piss poor emulators. This might be good, but with the embargo and chip shortages going on, yeaaaaaah, not gonna be cheap.

    And the Switch is shaped just like every other gaming tablet out there. There's really not much you can do with a rectangle and standard control buttons.

    No its litrally shaped like a tablet.

    Correct me if i am wrong, but nintendo did not invent tablets to play games.

    How else is a tablet going to look.

    Those controls need to have an alternative option, where the analog sticks are aligned and the lettered buttons are in the (clockwise) XABY layout, a la Nintendo.

    Indeed, I've always found the Xbox design to be uncomfortable and confusing to my muscle memory.

    Amusingly most people are complaining about the opposite on the GPD Win 3. People really aren't too keen on the Wii U analogue sticks lol

    Because they're above the buttons?
    Personally, I've never found that to be an issue; as long as they're aligned, it's all good to me. I might just be weird like that, but...well, honesty is the best policy, right?

    No theyre not, they match the xbox pad not nintendo.

    And if you had any sence ypud understand that this is a gaming pc tablet running windows 10, so its controller is same as xbox.

    They cant change the layout or else if your playing a pc game, the default button maps will not match whats printed on the button, if x becomes y, in game its still x.

    This thing seems REALLY cool, and I love the concept. I just hope it:

    1. Actually releases
    2. Doesn't break the $900 price point
    3. Is worth its price point
    4. Sticks around and receives proper support

    And I also really hope these prices are accurate, and not a typo..

    Because I would much rather spend $4.99 on joystick caps than $49. on joystick caps.

    I mainly just mean that I hope the company doesn't abandon it immediately after release. I've seen a lot of neat concepts have that happen to them, one or two manufacturing batches are sold, then they go off sale, the company goes quiet, some Windows update breaks some drivers or something, and it becomes too janky to use.

    Yeah, I was talking about other things that have been broken like that, and using it as an example of what's happened when a company didn't support their product. I'm aware that it isn't a 100% compatible analogy to the situation.

    Its the risk when its a group of people doing crowd funding than pitch the idea to a business.

    Id have thought microsoft would be interested in this been a handheld for them, as it runs win10 it could stream content from your pc, xbox and this (tho youll be able to anyway, but good marketing pitch if ms was to pick it up)

    Would piss all over nintendont.
